After a blaze burned by way of the roof and spire of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, a world-famous metropolis landmark, progress is properly underway with the historic constructing scheduled to reopen by 2024. Huge oak beams have been hoisted skyward so the cathedral will be re-roofed. The spire, reconstructed from its earlier design by the famed Nineteenth-century French architect Viollet-le-Duc, stands at 96 meters (315 toes), topped with a rooster and cross.
